"Science fiction goes all the way back to the invention of movies (and of course before that in literature). The core notion has always been with us: we enter the world of film to see another world. So far as films about the future and/or space, that element of the genre was fully mature by the end of the 30s and reached its peak in "Forbidden Planet" of 1956" - Richard Schickel
"Patru maeștri ai cinematografului american - Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Ridley Scott, James Cameron - vorbesc spre filmele SF al anilor '50 care i-au influențat. Intervențiile lor sunt bogat ilustrate cu extrase din cele mai spectaculoase producții de gen ale epocii respective". Redactor Anca Georgescu
